Movie Info

Stressed to the max by her burned-out husband (Bruce Davison) and her slacker daughter (Terra Vnesa), teacher Susan Freeman (Kathy Baker) takes comfort in the fact that her 15-year-old son Matt (Paul Franklin Dano) is an honor student with an advanced sense of responsibility and a strong work ethic. But even the smartest of kids can make the dumbest of mistakes: While tutoring fellow student Francesca (Katie Stuart), Matt recklessly has sex with the girl -- getting her pregnant the first time out. At the risk of his future (and possibly his sanity), Matt not only takes upon himself the burdens and responsibilities of unwed parenthood, but also fights Francesca's efforts to give up the baby for adoption. Too Young to Be a Dad first aired June 10, 2002 on the Lifetime cable network.more

Wonderfully done.

Super Reviewer

watching it right now. Its prob not a good idea to show a boy taking responsibility b/c its not going to happen in real life even though it should. the first time he knocks someone up they should show him shunning her like what would normallly happen.


I actually liked this movie. It was very inspiring to see a 'dad' be so devoted... even thought its fake.
